Check the infrared emission from the remote control first. If it is found OK, repalce the infrared sensor inside your tV.

hi, usually if the remot control is ok, the the infrared receptor that need to be replace, he is placed near the stand by light.
in a rare case the problem is at the 5v voltage that goes to the receptor. more rare is the possibility
that something is wrong at the microprocessor circuit. good luck!

If you are not getting any audio from tv channels and playing a DVD or VHS cassette or a Wii and these devices are connected to different parts of the television then the tv is to blame. The speakers would probably be more than the television is worth to fix at this point. I recommend a sound bar. We purchased one on black Friday from Radio Shack an Auvio brand. It is gorgeous and I have a DVD player and converter box connected to it. We have theater sound and FM radio as a plus now.

Hi, on most of the CRT(glass picture tube) TV the common failure area is the deflection or power supply board(s). If you're TV is a 32AF42(what shows in your post)there is a remanufactured board available at partstore.com. I suggest you take a quick check at the deflection board in the TV set and try to determine if this is the board to replace, horizontal output transistor, flyback or horizontal out transformer, power supply regulator are some of the components to check. good luck!

There is a fuse inside your tv near the transformer. Be carefull if you open the cover as tv's hold there charge for a few days.

This set has a power button on the far right of all the buttons on the front. I looked at page 11 of the owners manual http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000001840.pdf and it shows it very clearly. It looks as if the power button may be turned the opposite way from the other buttons. Thanks

Get a set of video cables to connect the DVD player to the TV.
Then follow the numbered instructions in this post to connect the DVD player, and use your TV remote to switch the video mode when you want to watch a DVD, then switch it back when you want to view TV.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

If you're sure the proper codes have not been lost in both your remotes, then possibly the IR receciver in you TV has gone bad. Stargazer

If you're not on cable or satellite, you will need an antenna to get off-the-air reception. This TV does not have a DTV tuner, so you will also need the converter box. Depending on how far you are from the broadcasters' transmitters, you might be able to get away with an indoor antenna. Or you might find that you get few channels with the inside antenna and then you'll need something outdoors. There are a number of styles to choose from.

The antenna hooks to the converter box, and the converter box then goes to the TV. It can be hooked to the TV's "ANTENNA" connector. This should be covered in the set's manual where it shows you how to connect a regular antenna. With the box, your TV will always stay on channel 3 or 4 (depends on how you set up the box) and you'll change channels on the converter.

You can also connect the converter to the TV with audio and video cables like you would a DVD player. Most of the "coupon-eligible" converter boxes include direct video and audio output jacks. This gives you better picture and sound quality than by hooking it to the TV's antenna input.

Hooking up a converter box is like going back in time to when cable TV was new and you had to get a converter box from your cable company. Same way of hooking it up. Hope this helps!
